Karin was very friendly, and communicated with us whenever we needed to through the trip. The home was nice and the surrounding area was beautiful. The views throughout the drive and on any of the hiking trails are amazing. She left a guide for us detailing many of the trails around the area, instructions on how everything worked in the house, and rules for treating her house that were perfectly reasonable. Just a great experience all around. ( 11/10 with rice, 5/7 perfect movie, and so on) For advice, I definitely suggest at least a midsize SUV for the roads in and out (you could probably use a car, but you will potentially bottom out if the road isn't scraped in some places.) We had no problems with cell reception at the cabin either ATT or T Mobile service (iphone 7 and S7 edge), but she warns that it may be spotty. You can shop for supplies at Alma or Fairplay , but If you're coming from the north, I would suggest doing your shopping in Breckenridge or Dillon for larger selection.

Karin is awesome and very accommodating. Her home is well kept and perfect for a quiet getaway! You are much better off coming in on CR1, better road to travel. Thanks Karin, we enjoyed your home!

We loved our stay here. We saw moose in the evenings at the end of El Lobo Drive which was great! We really relaxed and enjoyed our time as a family. The kitchen was very well appointed and we would love to come stay again sometime. It is truly secluded. We didn't see another person until after we had been there for over 24 hours. Loved it and would highly recommend. We went to the store in Fairplay to get all our groceries. Thanks again!

Couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay at this cabin. Amazing location, awesome home. The drive up to the house is pretty steep and rocky, but was totally doable in my Mazda sedan during the summer... In the winter she's not kidding, you will 100% need a 4x4. The showers were great and had organic shampoo/conditioner, kitchen had everything we needed. The beds are pretty dang firm, so if you need a softer bed I'd recommend bringing some extra padding.... But after a long day, actually wasn't half bad. Great stay, would highly recommend!
